There are three easy ways to get involved with PITT ARTS:
1. Connect with our Arts Encounters and Hotlist
Undergraduate Arts Encounters
Undergraduates have the unique opportunity to attend our Arts Encounters programs. PITT ARTS brings University of Pittsburgh undergraduate students to 110 Arts Encounters a year. This includes trips to experience the most sought-after arts events in Pittsburgh, such as the symphony, opera, ballet, films, concerts, galleries, and the theater. We provide transportation, a catered reception, and tickets.
Also, there is always a socio-educational component that offers a context for the encounter you will have with art, such as e-mailed essays, discussions with artists, or hands-on workshops.
Arts Encounters are for traditional undergraduates only.
Undergraduates who sign up for our distribution list will receive an e-mail every Monday in which upcoming Arts Encounters are described in detail.
The Hotlist: For graduate students, faculty & staff
PITT ARTS sends out a Hotlist via e-mail every Wednesday that lets you know about upcoming cheap and free arts events going on every week in the city and on campus that we feel deserve your special attention.
